look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

I enjoyed this beer from the comfort of my own living room. From 750ML bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Orange/yellow color. A nice frothy head and lacing.

Smell: Smells of fresh peaches and reminded me a woodchuck apple cider beer.

Taste: Tart and sweet. Made my mouth pucker, but in a good way.

Mouthfeel: Tingly with a sweet, fruity aftertaste.

Drinkability: Not too shabby for my first peach beer. I wouldn't consider this a session beer for me, but worth trying.

This lambic pours orange and fizzy. Definitely have to warm it up or it just tastes like peach soda.

There is a nice peach aroma that improves with warming.
The first thing you get is the sweet peach taste. Not nasty sweet like a dessert wine, and not quite as sweet as orange soda, but it's sweet. There's no hop bitterness, as you would expect. There is a obvious tartness and then a mild sourness that cuts the sweetness off. Really tastes like soda or cider. The sourness at the end really saves it from being one-sided though.

I had a wine and beer party where I offered tiny tastes of different wines and beers. There were a bunch of girls there who just don't drink, haven't developed any taste for tannins or hops. Just a drop of this peach lambic and they all loved it. So, in summary, nice sweet fruity drink that may be especially appreciated by the uninitiated. I have no doubt that less mainstream lambics must have more complexity, though I have not tried any.

This was my first experience with a Lambic and an eye-opening one at that. Poured a hazy, lazy, pale gold with a white head and sharp lacing. Smelled of fresh peaches soaked in fresh peach juice. Tasted of a peach farm, peach puree with a simple syrup component to it. ad a clean, brisk and refreshing bite to it with a little tartness on the end. Mouthfeel was crisp and clean and bubbly. Drinkability, maybe not for a night out but the right time for this beer is a summer weekend. Really good stuff.

Pours a golden yellow color with a nice head.

Smell is peaches, light malt and grains.

Taste is peach, light malt and grains.

Mouthfeel is soft on the palate with nice tight, tickling bubbles. Not too cloying or puckering.

Drinkability is high.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Crystal clear wheat color. Not overly carbonated in the flute glass.

S: A real tartness comes through. Hints of peach. Some sweetness. A good balance.

T: Really great balance of tart and sweet and peach flavors. The tartness overtakes a bit much near the end but not bad.

M: Great flavor development here. This really lets the peach come through while having a perfect carbonation. Again, sweet and tart.

Overall a great showing. I dare say this one is a little too sweet compared to other Lindemans but the balance is great as always. Highly recommended.

In honor of my wife being pregnant and unable to drink, I decided to try one of her fav brews. I've tasted Lindeman's before and enjoyed it, but I felt I needed to have a full bottle to give it a proper review.

A: Clear, bubbly orange/ amber with a creamy off white head that stuck around left a nice lace.

S: Aroma is clear of fresh peaches with a sugary and carbonated undertone.

T: Not surprisingly, peaches come through first and most prominently with a VERY sweet and lightly tart undertone. Has a bit of a sparkling wine quality to it.

M: Light body with a lot of carbonation and a bit of an oily texture.

D: Certainly different from my usual tastings, but not a bad brew overall. As I said little earlier, this has a good bit of a sparkling wine quality to it so it's probably good brew for folks who enjoy that style (like my wife when she's not pregnant, ha). Not a must try by any means, but a good brew none the less.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

12oz bottle, capped and corked

Apperance: Minimal head retention, but a nice foamy lace. Color is a cloudy peach and golden yellow.

Nose: Obviously I got a lot of fresh peaches. It isnt the outside of the peach, its the inner scent. Its tart as well.

Taste: It's wierd, this brew, and most fruit lambics taste like flavored fruit soda. This was no exception. I obviously got a lot of nice peach flavor. So i dont know if this means the soda makers have the taste of peach down to a tee, or if Lindemans actually used real peaches. Its basically sweet, peach, beer, sticky aftertaste.

Notes: Awsome, but only by heritage. I love the drink, hate the price.

(Cellared for 10 months before consuming)

A: Dark-golden pilsner color, nicely spritzy.

S: Wheat beer with tons of fresh peach aroma. Also notes of hay, horse pasture, and malt sugar.

T: Sweet-and-sour with emphasis on the sweet. Malt and peach - almost like peach pie filling. Twangy, tangy finish with some nice funk.

M: Almost too syrup-sweet, but some funk comes in to rescue it at the end.

D: PERFECT with homemade coconut cake. I'll get this one again, easily.

From a corked bottle, poured into a snifter glass.

Poured dark with hints of orange and gold. Hazy, with a small white head that dissolved quickly.

Smell of peaches dominates the nose.

Taste is sweet, slightly tart, and full of peaches.

Very clean mouthfeel, crisp, & refreshing...like other reviewers to me this is like drinking a fine peach soda.

Very drinkable, but maybe only one at a time for me. More than one beer this sweet in a sitting might be a bit much.

Frothy, white head and clear. aroma has hints of herbs and grass, light yeast, peach (duh). Dry texture, with a very fizzy carbonation. Heavy sweet innitial flavor and finish. Peach is, of course, the dominant flavor, but it's not too overpowering. Very refreshing.

I've pretty much enjoyed every lambic I've had and this was no exception. The Peche pours a cloudy dark orange. It smells very sweet and you can definitely detect the peach flavor. The taste is similar. Very sweet peach flavor with just a bit of a sour finish. I highly recommend this lambic.
